Grace is another in a long line of great books by Max Lucado that provide spiritual insight. The focus of this one is on grace, as per the name. It is a simple concept - God provides us grace and all we have to do is ask forgiveness and accept it. In theory, however, it can be a tough concept to grasp. Lucado does a good job of explaining grace in its many forms and providing multiple illustrations from both the Bible and real life to support his ideas. This book is a quick and easy read; Lucado does a nice job simplifying spiritual truths in his writing style.
My two favorite quotes from the book:
1. God's grace has a drenching about it. A wildness about it. A white-water, riptide, turn-you-upside-downness about it. Grace comes after you.
2. In the Chinese language the word for righteousness is a combination of two characters, the figure of a lamb and a person. The lamb is on top, covering the person. Whenever God looks down at you, this is what he sees: the perfect Lamb of God covering you.
In addition to the text, the book also contains a Reader's Guide, which is pretty thorough. Therefore, the book can also be used for Bible Studies and Small Group studies.
I would recommend this book to anyone interested in the concept of grace, or anyone in need of grace.
I received a copy of this book from Thomas Nelson Publishers in exchange for an honest review.
